We have already had several weeks to recover from the end of the third season of ‘Elite‘. It was an outcome with a clear farewell flavor since it marked the end of an era for the Netflix series, but what we all have quite clear is that this was not going to be the end of ‘Elite’.
At the time it was already informally commented that the series had renewed for two additional batches of episodes, but Netflix has resisted making it official. Despite this, at we have decided that the time has come to review everything we know so far about this season 4 of ‘Elite’.
At the time, the possibility that ‘Elite’ would completely renew its cast for a possible fourth season sounded strong. The third was easy enough to leave everything tied to that possibility, but finally left the door to several returns if the series continues to be set in Las Encinas.
Let’s remember that at the end of the third season we saw how Guzmán, Samuel, Rebeka, Ander, and Omar were prepared to start the course in Las Encinas, while Cayetana also appeared at school, but now working as a cleaner helping her mother.
This does not guarantee that we will see them in the more than likely fourth season, but everything points to yes. Of the rest of the cast, it is even more in the air that some will return, albeit occasionally – I’m sure many fans will be looking forward to seeing the possible reunion between Carla and Samuel – but it is certain that new characters are needed, and not exactly a few, to fill the void left by Polo, Nadia, Lu or Valerio.
What is certain is that we can conclude the passage of Jorge López as Valerio since in an interview with Esquire he made the following statements:
We will have to see how Darío Madrona and Carlos Montero, the creators of the series, surprise us.
The fourth season of the series mixed familiar faces of the series as Itzan Escamilla, Miguel Bernardeau, Aron Piper, Omar Ayuso, Claudia Salas, and Georgina Amorós with newcomers to the series as Manu Rios, Carla Diaz, Martina Cariddi, Pol granch, or Diego Martin.
Last January, it was leaked that Netflix planned to start filming the fourth season just a few weeks later, but nothing has been heard again, so perhaps the information was not correct or there was simply a change of plans. Whatever the case, the stoppage of the audiovisual sector due to the coronavirus crisis made it impossible to shoot for a while, announcing that the recordings had begun in July.
The release date
The renewal is not even official, so there is no release date. What is worthwhile is taking as a reference the time that passed between its renewal for a second season and the premiere of those eight episodes. It was announced in October 2018 and then it didn’t premiere until September of the following year. 11 months.
What would be better is to ignore that six months passed between the second and the third, since they were shot consecutively, something that shortens the deadlines. With ‘La casa de Papel’ the same thing happened with the third and fourth seasons, hence the wait for a very likely fifth installment will be greater.
The good news is that if it is true that the fourth and fifth are shot at the same, then we will also have to wait less once we have met the new characters of ‘Elite’. After all, the third had an end that was the end of a stage, so you suffer less with waiting.
